  • Hi new to scrolling, not with woodworking though

    I have been a hobby wood worker for about 10 years. My specialty is wood finishing (staining, dyes, and varnishing) but I am looking for new styles of wood working. I love the intricacy that scrolling seems to offer, and this will add another tool to my arsenal of working wood.

    I look forward to taking in the knowledge and skill that any are willing to share.

    Thank you all for your help, and if you have any questions about wood finishing I may be able to assist on several issues.

      Kam -- Welcome!! Good to have you here. I too had some woodworking in my past before getting into scrolling. Your expertise in finishing will be much appreciated here. There is a section of the forum just for that. Check out "Wood Finishing And Painting" if you haven't found that section yet.

            Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

            The new Circular Scroll Saw Designs book form Fox Chapel
            by Tom in Ashland
            Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

            Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost.
